This beauty is also one of the kindest souls. There is such a thing as a total package.
This was part of such an amazing collaboration yesterday. These projects stoke my creativity, challenge me to try new things, to not take my creative process for granted, and to enjoy the beauty of the coming together of creative energies.

All you need is LOVE.... and a broken down rusty truck full of pumpkins. ♥️🎃
Is it even Fall if you don’t get a picture surrounded by pumpkins? 🍂🍁 AND WHY ARE THERE NO PUMPKIN EMOJIS?!
The cutest leather jacket 🙌🏻🧡

Still dying over that "just said yes!" reaction from Gio + Lauren. How did your love pop the question? Funny story--my husband proposed at a restaurant and the waiter completely ruined it by congratulating us before my husband even asked.
Dark moody sunset water photos. Doesn’t get any steamier than this folks.
Today I cut back my dahlias and covered them with a shit ton of mulch. Can everyone say a little prayer they come back next year please thanks
We leave Iowa tomorrow and we don’t want to go. ☹️
DOUBLE WEDDING WEEKENDS MEANS DOUBLE POSTS!!! this has to be my favorite frame from Heather & Alex’s wedding last Saturday. such a lovely intimate wedding at the camp where Heather worked many summers. i just love when the wedding site is sentimental to the couple ❤️
Reminiscing on this cape Kiwanda elopement today 😍❤️
This rainy October chapel wedding 😍 When it rains on your wedding day, you make the most of it no matter what, and we get super dreamy photos.
Pop the bubbly, It's our birthday!🎉 The Abernethy is celebrating 17 years today. That's right, we opened 10/15/2001. Although wedding trends have come and gone, some things never change. It's a tremendous honor to be a part of so many love stories. Every couple is unique and, even after 17 years, every wedding is a different surprise. We truly love what we do. We thank you for your partnership, your friendship and your business. Cheers & Much Love!!! 🥂❤️

Question! Photographers, what’s your go to one-liner to get your clients laugh?! Actually you don’t even have to be a photographer!! Are you funny? Fave quick joke that’s always works?!😂
You guys, there was a spider in my pants. IN MY PANTS. Excuse me while I spend the remainder of my night screaming in terror.
(1/2) This time last year I picked up my Canon rebel, a rented 24mm lens, and set my camera to aperture priority. With shaky hands I started to click away at the proposal happening before my eyes, keeping in mind the tips and tricks @erikadenhoed
had taught me the weeks leading up to this. Looking back now, I had no idea where photography would take me. I was simply taking a few photos for my brother-in-law and now sister-in-law. I remember feeling surprised at how much I enjoyed taking photos, and having the opportunity to capture the raw emotion.
That evening @mattieclaire_carranza
flew in to surprise the newly engaged couple, and happens to be an incredibly talented photographer. She showed me how to edit a few of the photos that night and soon after they were posted to social media. The rest of the evening was spent with our phones away, gathered around a table of pumpkin turkey chili to celebrate the newly engaged couple.
The next morning I checked my phone and much to my surprise, I had two messages requesting to book me for photos. Since that day I haven’t looked back. Countless others have rallied around me to encourage and teach me along the way. I am so thankful. I am thankful for the time others have given me, the clients who have trusted me, and the adventure this career has taken me on- but more to come on this tomorrow. 🌲
Need coffee..... happy Monday!
Monday’s are a tad on the crazy side, I typically start it off by returning emails and answering messages. Then album designs and then wedding edits go into full force! It’s been one of those busy days and I am breaking for some mid-day coffee.
How do you typically start your Monday’s off?
Charleston holds such a sweet place in my heart. A little college town that has the most beautiful magnolias, with the sweetest ice cream shops & where my hubby took me as one of our first adventures together. Elizabeth & Chris just made Charleston 100000x better last night! Already missing it 💫

I’m snuggled up by my electric fireplace watching photography tutorials trying to convince myself to leave the fuzzy blanket for a cold garage and a sander. 😂🙈 Can you BELIEVE this cake was made by a friend who doesn’t even bake cakes for a living?! My kiddos are on the waitlist for her Forest Kindergarten program but I wish my brides were on a waitlist for her cakes, too! 😍😋
Me when I'm an actual guest at a wedding.
I’ve written and deleted this caption ten times because I literally can not for the life of me figure out what I’m supposed to say about these two incredible people who inspire me with their love of each other and their wild free life. Who have given me the best kind of friendship there is ever since I’ve moved out here. From exploring the Shanghai tunnels to celebrating birthdays and bachelorette parties to crazy karaoke nights- you guys are the best and I love you so much.
Also, when asking Beeba which photo to choose she said definitely this one “Bc she’s like I’m queen and this is my kingdom and this is my mans”- so there’s that too haha

I believe in celebrating the small victories!! When I decided to take the leap and move across the country I was so nervous about how my business would do. I had always relied on word of mouth referrals and knew that my lack of connections in WA was going to make it a little more difficult. I had also just deleted my main instagram account and dove in with one account to really start focusing on growing clientele and connections!! And holy smokes has it been an amazing transition so far. I have met so many wonderful people who have turned into clients and then friends as well as fellow photographers through this app! 💞 I wanted to share this little milestone with you because you guys keep me encouraged and always remind me why I do what I do!!
This giveaway includes couples photos, family photos, just because portraits and senior photos! (This giveaway does not apply to current clients.)

Just a few more weddings this year until the season closes out for me, i’m left so thankful in the capacity God as blessed me with the couples He has brought in my path. I’ve neglected Instagram a ton this year, so I’m going to post a lot of my favorite moments from this wedding season :)
